Red Canyon Wild and Scenic River

Red Canyon Wild and Scenic River

Red Canyon flows south and the stream cuts a narrow deep gorge through the rolling plateau landscape until it joins the Owyhee River.  Like the other canyons of the Owyhee River system, Red Canyon contains basalt and rhyolite walls.  Riparian vegetation is well established and this canyon provides outstanding hiking and backpacking opportunities. This is not a boatable section of river.

Find out more about other wild and scenic rivers on the Idaho National Conservation Lands page or on the wild and scenic rivers program page.
